PG&E Health Care Energy Efficiency Program

hospital energy efficiency

Pacific Gas & Electric's Healthcare Energy Efficiency Program (HEEP) enables medical facilities to lower energy use and utility costs while increasing operational efficiency, conserving natural resources and reducing air emissions. HEEP offers a combination of financial incentives, energy audits, engineering analysis, implementation oversight, and retro-commissioning assistance to help facility owners and managers upgrade their existing equipment with new, energy-efficient equipment and controls.

HEEP offers a “one-stop” solution to help PG&E healthcare customers identify energy efficiency improvements and qualify for incentive/rebate dollars to help offset the cost of implementing these measures. Our team will guide customers through the application process and complete all the necessary paperwork, making the process easy.

HEEP targets healthcare facilities receiving electric and/or gas service from PG&E, including medical office buildings, skilled nursing facilities, acute care hospitals, and other ancillary building types. To ensure that the program is successful and straightforward, PG&E contracts with Willdan Energy Solutions, a third-party energy efficiency specialist, to implement the services.
